Christopher Lee - The Real Bloodsucker

Count Dracula is definitely one of the most famous vampire of all time. Bram Stoker developed this gothic scary unique back in 1897. This blood-sucking vampire ended up being a prototype for several subsequent stories on the vampire topic. The story created by the Irish novelist sets about Matter Dracula’s efforts to relocate from Transylvania to England. He does it primarily to spread his curse and discover new targets for bloodsucking. The ending of the novel was later removed where it is written that the Dracula’s castle collapses and also is ruined after his death.

There are several versions of Dracula that were shot because of the success of Hammer movies starring Christopher Lee as Matter Dracula. But none accomplished the level of fearsome characterization of the vampire by Christopher Lee. Lee appeared as the vampire in 10 films throughout the 1960s and also 70s, and also 7 of them were directed by Hammer. Most of these movies were successful which illustrated Lee in the title function. Peter Cushing played Van Helsing, the vampire killer in a lot of these movies.

The success of these movies motivated several various other stars as well as directors to attempt their hand at different versions the Bram Stoker story. However no person ever before got to the elevation that Christopher Lee did. I have seen one of the earlier variations called Count Dracula which is a British movie that still sends a shiver up my spinal column. It is made extremely merely with sensible sets as well as still is frightening. Christopher Lee was an achieved actor as well as played several other unforgettable duties. James Bond fans would immediately indicate The Male with the Golden Weapon.

A number of other efforts were made after the Hammer movies especially in the seventies to produce the same magic. However the Dracula depicted in these films did not come close to the cooling representation by Lee in Hammer films. Bela Lugosi who played the Dracula in 1931 was a great competitor however others not really. Gary Oldman in the much-discussed Bram Stoker’s Dracula in 1992 produced a lot of buzz however he just wasn’t as enormous as Lee. Some took a wayward check out the story by informing it as a comedy, musical or an animation movie. There was likewise an opera tackle the story. Yet to the diehard fans of Dracula, the Christopher Lee variations remain the ones to appreciate and also value. Numerous variations have been made till date and some are planned in coming years. Let’s see!
